  • We went to visit the old Court last Sunday, during the exhibition "once upon a time" ... a marvel! Passing through several frescoed rooms or with tapestries on the walls and ceilings that leave open-mouthed. In these environments, thanks to the view above, you can see beautiful wedding dresses from various periods. I absolutely recommend a visit!

  • Every place in this area is wonderful. I think Verona is such a beautiful district. This Palace and all the surrounding buildings was really beautiful
  • Frescoes inside is impressive. St George Castle next to it has monumental walls and moat. Parking around is difficult though.
  • If you go to Mantova, this is the first place you should go visit. It is very elegant and recommendable to visit. It costs around 10€ and you need about 2h to visit
  • A fantastic place to historic cultural level, amazing frescoes and Renaissance air anywhere to visit if you are in Mantova
  • Curated beautifully. The employees are obviously not happy at all! Rude to people from the bigliettero to the uscita! Too bad, a gorgeous place!
